Friends in the ACGA:
happen to be in NYC on Monday August 6th, please stop by this extremely
important and significant garden event. This may very well be the beginning of a
highly significant city wide coalition of parks, community garden, housing and
general quality of life groups that may turn things around.
And...if you show up at 6:30 you are close enough to
the Broadway theaters to make an 8:00 curtain!
The upcoming Parks 2001
Garden Forum on this Monday night is promising to be
an awesome opportunity
to hear many of the leaders shaping the current
campaigns for garden and
park preservation and funding. Heading the program
will be Tim Tompkins,
co-campaign manager of Parks 2001. He will be speaking
on what Parks 2001
can do for community gardens and how your community garden
can play an
important role in the campaign.
In light of the current devisive
statements of Mayor Giulianni, Patrick
Markee, Coalition for the Homeless,
will address the erroneous housing vs.
gardens issue. The program will also
include Alban Calderon of Trust for
Public Land; Brian Sahd, New York
Restoration Project; Francoise Cachelin,
NYC Community Garden Coalition;
Doron Comerchero, GreenThumb and Community
Gardeners - Jon Crow (Brooklyn),
Karen Washington (Bronx) and Margaret B.
Moore (Queens). The program will
end with an open floor question and answer
session. This is an opportunity
to collectively join forces in the remaining
days before the fall election
and outline strategies that will elect leaders
with a vision for quality
urban planning. Please have your garden represented!
See you Monday
Annie Chadwick, Chairperson
